Bottles Made from 100% Recycled Plastic



As the country’s leading mayonnaise brand, Hellmann’s is making big changes to provide Canadians with condiments that deliver real taste with less waste. In 2020, all Hellmann’s mayonnaise jars and bottles will be made with 100 per cent recycled plastic.

Same Real Taste, Less Plastic Waste

By converting to 100 per cent recycled plastic jars and bottles, our Hellmann’s packaging will have a slightly darker tint. But, as the saying goes – it’s what’s on the inside that counts! Hellmann’s mayonnaise has the same great taste and continues to be made with real ingredients, including sustainably sourced canola oil from the fields of Saskatchewan and free-run eggs.


By choosing Hellmann’s, Canadians can show they’re on the side of food and the planet. Hellmann’s new recycled plastic jars and bottles are 100 per cent food safe.

The Importance of Recycling

Nine in 10 Canadians say they need more education around recycling, plastic waste and its environmental impact . We’re proud to introduce the How2Recycle® labels on all our packaging so more empty Hellmann’s jars and bottles get recycled and repurposed.

Unilever’s Sustainable Living Plan

The move to 100 per cent recycled plastic for our jars and bottles is one way the Hellmann’s brand is delivering on Unilever’s Sustainable Living Plan – an ambitious roadmap to change the way business is done.


Unilever’s Sustainable Living Plan sets out to decouple growth from our environmental footprint, while increasing our positive social impact. The plan has three big goals, spanning social, environmental and economic performance. Hellmann’s efforts will support the company’s goal of increasing the recycled plastic used in Unilever North America’s plastic packaging to 50% by the end of 2019. Doing good for the planet pays off in many ways. It means placing sustainability at the heart of our business to help the Unilever brands stay relevant. It means operating sustainably to help to future-proof Unilever against risks associated with climate change and sourcing materials. And by cutting waste and reducing the use of energy, raw materials and natural resources, we create meaningful efficiencies while doing good for the planet.
